Introduction: Now offering Zoom weddings during Stay At Home time! I am a former United Methodist pastor, ordained in the Christian (Disciples of Christ). I do both religious and non-religious ceremonies. I love spending time with people at the most important times of their lives during weddings and funerals. Colorado has started to tighten restrictions on who may officiate a wedding. You can find that list here on the state regulations site at .colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/performing-marriage As ordained clergy, my signature on your marriage license is authorized by the state.

Wedding Officiant

Amazingly nice lady! She drove up the mountains to marry my husband and I! Asked for payment AFTER she married us which I thought was really cool. She took wedding pictures with us...and allowed us to have a drone record her and us whilst the ceremony took place... Overall she was really amazing!!

We feel that she did an outstanding job of presiding over our wedding. Personalized the content and presented with enthusiasm. Even took time at the end to take a few pictures for us. I would highly recommend.

Wedding Officiant

I wish I could have chosen all five because they would have all pertained to Pastor Teri. She was wonderful and although our wedding was a bit informal, she helped to make it absolutely beautiful and what I wanted! Highly recommend!

Wedding Officiant

We were so happy with the ceremony Teri put together for us. She went above and beyond customizing it. Knowing we are both huge baseball fans, she came up with a way to incorporate Casey At The Bat into the ceremony. She really listened to what we wanted and made the ceremony fun and special for us. This was a destination wedding for us, and Teri made it easy. I would recommend Teri to anyone I know.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    It all depends on the needs of the family; the price has to be higher for travel outside the Denver/Colorado Springs area, especially if an overnight stay is required. Additionally, attendance at a wedding rehearsal if requested will be included in the price.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to meet with my clients before the service so I can personalize it for them.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Masters of Divinity, 2013 Iliff School of Theology
